5×8 Sumo Deadlifts
Coach’s Notes/Training Intent
Sumo deadlifts are performed with a wide stance, whereas the stance used for a conventional deadlift is considerably smaller. With this wide stance comes a shorter range of motion for the bar to travel, which consequently means you should be able to pull more in sumo than conventional when you are equally comfortable with them – not on your first time trying sumo. When sumo deadlifting, some of the stress of the lift is taken off of the back and spread across the quads, whereas in conventional, the majority of the stress is placed on your back. Today, athletes should use a weight that they will be smooth with for all sets.
